Question about new Mate Sparky
« on: December 09, 2014, 12:25:41 am »
I know I'm not going to say the right thing here, but...

I just downloaded and installed the new Mate version of Sparky.  It works wonderfully!  Thanks so much for it.

At the bottom of the screen is a dock that contains large icons of the various applications on my system.  I can't figure out how to add and/or remove items from the dock.  Dragging unused icons doesn't delete them.  I want to add Chromium to the dock (I've installed it).  Can someone please help me with this?  Thanks.

Already installed? :)

Go to Menu-> Accessories-> Wbar-config then use icons to add, edit or remove what you need.
Nothing is easy as it looks.

Thanks -- got it.

I notice wbar doesn't appear at the bottom of the screen when I move the mouse to the bottom.  This is a nice effect -- autohide -- that other programs offer.  Is there a way to set wbar to work this way?  Thanks again.

There is not autohide, sorry.
All the effects you can find in the tabs: Preferences and Effects.

Not a big deal.  Thanks!
